Great breakfast food is becoming even more competitive in Brisbane, so it's good to see some cafe's welcoming in our four legged friends. We've curated a dog-friendly list of our favourite Brisbane cafes. No more worries that you'll have to leave your pooch outside, all alone and without a refreshing bowl of water.
142 Bay Terrace, Wynnum QLD 4178
Frenchies is a home away from home for all dogs of the Wynnum area. They serve a great stack of pancakes but were founded on their purpose of being the friendliest of dog cafes!
86 Curragundi Rd, Jindalee QLD 4074
Based in a modest shopping complex in Jindalee, Piggy Back Cafe has become well known for their famous latte art. So much so, that their head barista recently won the ASCA state competition for latte art. Along with their love of rainbow coloured swans, the cafe also embraces their love of furry friends. Often covering their Instagram are cute pics of pooches lapping up sunshine in the outdoor seating.
